This is my primary residence, We purchased this sweet, undeveloped 10-acre slice of the Sierra foothills in 1979. We lived on the property in a single-wide mobile with our two sons for 7 years, and the longer we lived in the mobile, the bigger the house grew. In 2006 we increased 800 square feet (bringing us to 4600 square feet) to add on a fully handicapped-accessible master wing on the lower floor. Widowed in 2008, I've been reluctant to leave - my sons live in the area. I love it here. And, I want to share it. One of my sons will host me when you are here.
Property Manager purchased this house in 1985
We moved to this area because we wanted to grow our business where we wanted to retire - we wanted a life-long affair with our environs. We chose this particular piece of property for the night sky. We'd just come from 2 years of living in the high New Mexico desert on the Navajo Reservation - my husband was a dentist - and we'd never seen sky like that. We wanted that, even in the midst of the pine-studded foothills. And we found it. Getaway Lane is a destination - remember to look up!
I've stayed here twice with my family for Thanksgiving. It's a big, secluded piece of property with so much to offer. The house is full of charm and character. It was plenty big enough to accommodate our extended family of five adults and five children. I'm dying to go back and share the experience with my friends and their families.
There's a big kitchen right in the middle of the house and everything fans out from there...the fireplace/TV area, the communal dining table, multiple secluded bedrooms, quiet sun room to sit and read or watch the sunrise , covered porch, and a pool/spa area. Oh, and wild animals, a colorful landscape, sounds of nature, and stars, tons of stars.
We originally choose this area because of it's proximity to Yosemite, Bass Lake, etc., but, for our second trip, the house was just as much of a draw as were those natural wonders.
Can't wait to go back.
If you want peace and solitude or want to party until the cows come home...This is It! The home is huge, spotlessly clean and dressed out like a five star hotel. The bedrooms are spacious and secluded from the open living area allowing guests their own individual retreat. The covered wrap around porch was our favorite place for enjoying a/few glass of wine in the evening and coffee in the morning. The kitchen was stocked with really nice cookware, dishes, glasses and even had a great selection of spices and condiments. We enjoyed the large pool and hot tub, as well as, the privacy of being on such a large parcel. We visited many attractions nearby but this home is so nice, it's a destination as well.
What an amazing place to stay! The description and photos are accurate, but the home and property is better than described. We had 12 women together and plenty of space. Beds were comfortable with wonderful linens. The kitchen was great, and equipped with everything we could have wanted.
Plenty of food, drink and laughter was had by all and we hated to leave.
Stayed here for our girlfriends getaway and milestone birthdays! The property is beautiful, the house has every comfort you can imagine - we felt totally at home! Where can you find a place that 12 laughing women can go and not disturb the neighbors? We'll here it is!!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!
I and 11 of my best girlfriends stayed here, celebrating milestone birthdays for two of us. Plenty of room for all of us. Six of us easily prepped and cooked in the kitchen, while the other six sat at the raised counter and watched and offered many helpful cooking tips! We all dined around the table in the spacious dining room. After dinner and cake, we all settled into the living room to share wine and stories and love. We all slept in wonderful beds with crisp white linens, and enjoyed big fluffy towels after morning showers. So much space to enjoy! Decks and porches and quiet nooks and crannys. It was too cold for swimming, but the pool looked very inviting!
The home is secluded and very private, which was good, we were rather boisterous! We were so happy with our decision to stay here, we all left with wonderful memories of this magical home. We'll be back, and we're looking forward to it!
Spaciousness is what I love best about this home. You can stand anywhere in the living areas and have a view of the mountains. Step out on the porch for extended views and fresh air, and, at night, a dreamy sky. Work in the kitchen with two or three other people without confusion or congestion. Hang with others to watch a game or a movie or find a quiet spot alone to read a book (the library shelves are full). It's like a lodge with homey touches such as the owner's grandmother's vintage serving plates and bowls. Then there is the proximity to beautiful, wild places. Yosemite is spectacular, and if you are a U.S. citizen 62 or older, you can get a lifetime national parks pass for $10 at the gate. This home seems to sit alone, so privacy is ensured, yet it is not far from Oakhurst for grocery shopping and such. It's a wonderful place to rest and unwind after a day seeing the sights. For us sightseeing one day and resting here the following day made for a perfectly-balanced vacation.
